Heritage Days at Willoughby Farm in Collinsville was such fun. Kids and parents enjoyed visiting with the goats, llamas and alpacas and even a small dog, courtesy of the Petersons.

Demonstrations included papermaking, pottery, spinning and weaving, crocheting and knitting and loom work.
Donna Reese brought her accordian and played "Meet Me In St. Louis," "You Are My Sunshine" and other familiar tunes.

There was a bluegrass group that added to the ambiance with their banjos and guitars.

The weather held out and all was fun for the event.

The demos were provided by the Artisan Guild of Southern IL --

Check out the group -- we rocked!
